Thank you to ponteland archers and all the archers shooting for a good shoot ,well done to all who won.

Croft June 19th 2011

Brilliant day of racing at the Croft circuit in north yorkshire. The start of the day was spent looking around the area near to the pits and trying to find a good vantage point. The first race was a British Touring Car Championship race or for short (BTCC). a very good race and well fought race with Matt neal gaining first. There were many other races that happened in the course of the day, to many to go into on here! A big well done has to go to all the staff and to the drivers for putting up such a good show! Right then here are a few of the pictures i took to day, hope you enjoy...

killingworth lake (late/early) and duridge bay


Wednesday night i was at Killingworth lake trying to get a good picture of the sun setting, which i did, and then the following morning i spent taking advantage of the excellent lighting that early morning brought with it. i was happy with the results to! a few days later i went on a visit to Duridge bay, compared to the Wedensday/Thursday it was very dismal, grey featureless clouds hung over and it was rather cool to. very few photos i was happy with aswell. Hauxley there was very little of what i could see anyway. then visited Duridge pools and Cresswell pond, Duridge again very little. Cresswell turned up 3 Avocets and many martins swifts and swallows.
